(The Week)   Atlantic hurricane season runs out of names for the 2nd year in a row, 3rd time in history. But it snowed in Washington DC that one time, so no worries   (theweek.com) divider line

I was thinking of naming them after the prior year's list of top baby names, but that's pretty good too.

/And it gives us at least a ten-year supply right off the bat.

"RunforIt#2 is heading up the coast.  People in the way who refused to evac should now run for it.  Calls to 911 will be answered by a recording of Dan Castellana saying "You farked around.  Time to find out (Homer 2/No Homers laugh)"

In all seriousness, if someone invented a machine to stop carbon emissions today, permanently, and somehow figured out how to sequester every ounce of excess carbon in the atmosphere, hurricanes would still happen.

Not sure about you, but if someone is warning me that they are about to kick me in the dick, my Weeners isn't going to be, "Hey, ya'll better listen to Greta!"

Maybe try moving away from where the Earth is trying to kill you and, and if that isn't possible, maybe building literal brick shiathouses should be required as code.

In the same way we don't let anyone build a house in California without thinking of seismic prevention, maybe we should not issue people certificates of occupancy until they remediate their homes to hurricane prevention?

Hey, ya'll ... maybe whatever the hell THAT guy did to his house should be code minimum for anyone living there? Condemn every property until they can provide resistance to Cat5+ hurricanes in the same way we condemn homes that have been stripped of copper in the MidWest.

Global warming means that the AVERAGE temperature of Earth is rising.

Deniers seem to keep ignoring that yes, it's very possible for that the temperature goes down in some regions to the point you're feeling your nards will freeze off -- but somewhere else got even hotter, and the global average is higher than it used to be.

/And the shifting regional temperatures affect ocean currents, wind patterns, etc.

No. No. No. No. No.

That clown doesn't deserve more recognition. Imagine if it was a devastating hurricane and it winds up in the history books. Which, thanks to farking idiots like him is more likely.

No, name a toll booth or traffic interchange that gets backed up after him and then in 50 years name it after someone else just as deserving.

this is a good headline

guestguy: Start naming hurricanes after climate change deniers in the house/senate...


this is a good plan
we should take it a step further i think, and each storm named for a ccd, that rep or sen loses their name to the storm for good.  that rep or sen will thereafter be addressed by their new legally changed name, which will be the number of people killed in the storm.  first name, the dollar amount of damage.  so people will remember when they go to vote next.
 
2021-11-01 3:40:41 PM  
Out of curiosity, would all of the named storms of 2021 been named in 1981?  I don't know that Ana, Bill, or Danny would have been named storms without the current technology.  I don't doubt that such minimal storms existed.  I just think that the metric of using all the storm names on the list is more a reflection of better science than an increase the actual number of events.  There are better metrics for that.

A higher frequency of hurricanes is not likely to be a consequence of global warming:

A higher frequency of attribution is another matter..

The meteorologists instead came up with a supplemental list of names, starting with Adria, Braylen, and Caridad. If The Atlantic somehow gets 42 storms, the last two would be Viviana and Will. The alphabetical list of names, regular and supplemental, skip Q, U, X, Y, and Z.

I can almost smell the privilege.

TrashcanMan: I can almost smell the privilege.


Can you? Because I live in a shiathole house in a shiathole suburb of a shiathole city in a shiathole state. When the scrappers moved in ten years ago and stripped the copper from nearly every home in a 20 mile radius, the state came in, condemned the structures and then bulldozed them over. Hell, the banks even paid for it.

It isn't priveledge to demand that people live in habitable structures ... it's a base function of our government and why Certificates of Occupancy even exists. It's why NYC requires bedrooms to have two paths of egress. Because without these basic assumptions, people would choose to inhabit broom closets next to the Clorox and Works. We entrust our government to tell people whether or not their structures are habitable and - if they aren't because they exhibit a danger to the public - we empower our government - especially in liberal states - to tell people they can no longer inhabit those spaces.

At this point, these storms have proven that there are thousands of residences that don't meet the basic requirements of habitability and we MUST, we MUST hold our government to hold these property owners accountable.

It's not privilege, it's basic farking common decency.

I don't know how you'd describe a $65k house on 10 acres of land in the rural areas outside Perrysburg, Ohio, but I'd describe them in precisely the manner I said above.

It's cheap. Really cheap. Absurdly and unbelievably cheap. I can work a job that pays $25/hr, buy a decent 1200sf house with a 15Y mortgage, pay off my house in under 10 years, and afford to vacation any time I decide Ohio needs to fark off.

I'm okay with the life I chose, but privileged, it was not.

A lot of you that live in more wealthy areas seem to be - on paper - a lot more well off - but the chorus here is that everything is unaffordable and you can't make enough money to pay for childcare.

I'd prefer to live and work somewhere that an average job, worked by an average nobody, can still buy a middle-class lifestyle. Maybe you disagree? That's okay. More power to ya and I wish you all the best. I just chose to never mortgage my life for things and so far have done a pretty bang up job of it.

Yeah. The house in Mexico Beach that survived. Dude built a literal brick shiathouse and it survived. Testament to how building stuff to higher standards can pay dividends continually down the line.

Those are my old stomping grounds. Well, PCB actually. But started venturing to Mexico Beach when I was a kid, took our trucks out on the actual sand by the water when you were allowed to do that. I left there the year before Michael hit after living there for 30 some odd years. I was told the majority of the pine trees that were left looked as though a huge chainsaw came through and took off the top half. The indestructible house you posted looked familiar to me. That place holds a special place in my heart.  The people too.
